Alacoque Door Handles September 21st, 2017 - 06:31:27
When you are looking for door handles with an additional back plate you need to consider the different roles which style and tradition can play in the design of the door handles. The back plate is a very traditional feature of doors and can be seen on most Victorian-age homes but the plate can also be adapted for more modern use showing that it is adaptable for the times we live in. If you have a traditional home then you may choose a more traditional back plate design but for people living in new-build houses modern back plate features on handles can provide the nod to tradition that they were looking for without sacrificing style.
If you want to maintain the polish of these handles then the best possible and safest method is to use the natural and harmless products available in your kitchen. One possible method is to combine flour vinegar and salt to make a paste then apply it on your handles. Similarly you can also use pure lemon juice as a substitute of vinegar. If you are using ammonia then slightly dip a piece of clean cloth in it and rub it on your handles. If you are using supermarket polish then use the same procedure as with ammonia to rub it. This polish has the ability of removing grease grime and dirt.
When you consider that some 120 million doorways exist in the United States alone and another two million are installed each year you can only imagine the vast number of door knobs. Going back in history doors were initially made from textiles and animal hides. However during the ancient Mesopotamia and Egyptian era wooden doors were developed. Soon materials for making doors expanded to include stone glass metal and even paper.
As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum stainless steel glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
